For more than 30 years our preschool has provided an excellent setting for children to grow, play and learn together. A preschooler's development is best enhanced through play in a structured setting, so we have designed our environments to be engaging, secure, comfortable and age-appropriate. Our programs prepare children to read, write and understand math concepts.



Hamburg: We run classes for 3, 4, & 5 year olds (birthdays on or before Dec. 1).
East Aurora: We run classes for 3 & 4 year olds (birthdays on or before Dec. 1)


Class times:

Three-year-old classes: 9:15 am – 11:45 am

Four- and Five-year-old classes: 9:15 am – 12 pm


The Three-Year-Old program is designed to help children gain independence, participate in a group setting, and manage their feelings. They learn important academic and social skills, which increase their confidence and love for learning.


Hamburg classes:

2 days per week (Tues/Thurs) = $130/month

3 days per week (Mon/Wed/Fri) = $180/month


East Aurora classes:
2 days per week (Tues/Thurs) = $130/month



The Four-Year-Old program prepares children for kindergarten where they will need to function in a classroom setting. These readiness skills include growth in academics, socialization, emotional maturity, and confidence.


Hamburg classes:

3 days per week (Mon/Wed/Fri) = $180/month

4 days per week (Mon-Thurs) = $230/month


East Aurora classes:

3 days per week (Mon/Wed/Fri) = $180/month



The Transitional Kindergarten class is available only at our Hamburg location. This class is designed for children who will be five on or before December 1 but are not yet ready for full-day kindergarten. This program helps children grow into confident learners and friends in order to make the transition to kindergarten a smooth one.


Hamburg classes:

5 days per week (Mon-Fri) = $275/month
